I'm absolutely obsessed with the tone john myung had in the scenes from new york gig in 2000. I think his live tone is usually pretty mediocre but that definitely wasn't the case here. This tone is the growliest, most honky sounding I've ever heard and it punches through the mix like a battering ram so I'm trying to recreate it. I'm just not sure how and I was wondering if anyone can tell me by the sound in these videos. I can tell it's definitely the neck pickup but it also sounds like theres some effect going on which I can't seem put my finger on. It sounds like some breathy minimal use of overdrive or distortion but I can't tell for sure. You can really hear the tone in these videos, especially the parts at 12:34 in the first one 8:05 here and the whole first minute here Can anyone tell me how I can get a tone like that, especially by using what effect?
